Kabinett is the lightest and most delicate style of Riesling in Germany. It is produced from the earliest picking in the best vineyard sites. This estate grown Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett embodies the racy, mineral-driven style of steep, blue slate vineyards in the famous middle Mosel villages of Bernkastel, Graach and Wehlen. Dr. Loosen Rieslings from these villages are some of the most elegant white wines in the world, with fine density and subtle power.
Clean, crisp, distinctive Riesling Kabinett from Ernst Loosen, one of Germany's most celebrated winemakers.
An elegant aperitif wine, this is also an excellent partner for seafood, spicy Asian cuisine and lighter dishes that emphasize fresh ingredients.
"A fresh, crisp kabinett, sporting notes of apple and grapefruit, with a hint of orange. This is juicy and balanced, featuring a mineral element that enters on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020. 3,000 cases made."
"Loosen’s generic 2008 Riesling Kabinett Blue Slate (labeled only in English, since there is no market for it inside Germany) smells of mint, chervil, lime, narcissus, and ripe honeydew melon, which follow on a luscious, surprisingly softly-textured, yet refreshing palate. At only 8.5% alcohol, this is certainly delicate, yet its sweetness is impeccably-balanced. It reveals the rather Sauvignon-like aspects of less ripe 2008 Rieslings, and will offer fine value over the next 4-6 years."
